Another Tinkler company liquidated for bad debts

Another of mining magnate's Nathan Tinkler's companies has been forced into liquidation because of outstanding debts.

Patinack Farm Administration is involved in breeding horses and is part owned by Mr Tinkler and Hunter Sports Group chief executive Troy Palmer.

WorkCover South Australia was successful in its claim against Patinack for $17,000 in unpaid levies, with the Federal Court ordering the company be liquidated.

Anthony Matthews has been appointed as the liquidator.

WorkCover Queensland supported WorkCover South Australia in its application and the two were also awarded just over $4,000 in costs between them.

The news comes just a day after the New South Wales Supreme Court ordered another of Mr Tinkler's companies, Mulsanne Resources, be wound up for debts close to $30 million.

Hunter Sports Group says the liquidation of Patinack will have no impact on Mr Tinkler's sporting teams, the Newcastle Knights and the Newcastle Jets.

A HSG spokeswoman said there was an administrative error in the WorkCover matter made by an associated company of Patinack Farm.

She said all outstanding debts, as well as costs, were in the process of being paid and it was business as usual for the two teams.
